The Race for Success

In today’s busy world, it’s easy to get caught up in the relentless pursuit of success. We often chase more love, more happiness, more money, and more work, forgetting what truly matters and what artificial intelligence can never replicate: our hearts. Living and working with your heart is about reconnecting to your true self and embracing a natural, fulfilling way of life aligned with your inner values. I call this your “secret garden” or “sacred garden.”

Success and Happiness: More Than External Achievements

This philosophy is built on the understanding that success and happiness are not just external achievements but are deeply rooted in our state of being. It’s about how we feel and what we experience in life. A profound statement that encapsulates this idea is: “Live your legacy, don’t live to create a legacy. Make every day your legacy.” This approach discourages sacrificing the present for a future legacy, as life is unpredictable and can change in an instant.

The Heart: Centre of Being and Wisdom

The heart is more than just an organ; it’s the centre of your being and the seat of wisdom. Feeling life from the centre of your chest, from your heart, not just the physical heart, is where you find your authenticity. The heart is the core of your deepest humanity, where we connect to the divine and our true nature. This spiritual heart goes beyond feelings or emotions, representing pure, unconditional understanding, and a deeper wisdom that transcends intellectual knowledge.

Living and Working with Heart

Living and working with heart involves embracing your true self and unique gifts. It means listening to your inner voice and aligning your actions with your values, creating a life that is not only successful but also meaningful and fulfilling. In the evolving world of AI, living from the heart brings confidence and strength. This inner confidence is not based on external achievements but on a deep knowing of who we are and what we stand for.

Authenticity and Connection

Living with your heart fosters authenticity and genuine connections with others. It means embracing vulnerabilities and being open to connections, inspiring others to do the same. This authenticity is integral to living a fulfilling life and creating meaningful relationships.

Harmony and Balance

Harmony and balance are at the core of living from the heart. It’s about managing your energy, ensuring you don’t deplete yourself through overwork or stress. By aligning your life with nature’s laws, you can achieve a sense of harmony that mirrors the balance found in nature. This approach helps you navigate life’s challenges with grace and resilience.

Vision, Inspiration, and Purpose

To summarise, vision, inspiration, and purpose are the keys to living and working with heart.


Vision is your desire, the accelerator in your life’s journey. However, this pursuit can cause suffering if it becomes all-consuming and stressful.


Inspiration acts as the brake, bringing you back to the present moment. It allows you to appreciate the here and now, finding joy in simple things and creating a balance between ambition and contentment.


Purpose transcends your everyday desires and connects you to a higher calling. It is your highest value, often shaped by early life experiences. Living with purpose means being in a state of goodness, characterized by kindness, compassion, generosity, and thankfulness.


Living and working with heart means embracing your vision, finding inspiration in the present, and aligning your actions with a deeper purpose. This approach not only leads to success but also to a fulfilling and meaningful life. I hope you have enjoyed today’s discussion. This is Chris, wishing you a great day. Bye now.
